Keeping the Edge

After the Ektelon Nationals end in May, a sense of accomplishment and relief comes upon me. A sense of accomplishment because I’ve trained and played hard for another full season, and a sense of relief that I have a few months to get rest and get healthy. After nine months of hard work, it’s necessary to take time off, however, there also needs to be a balanced mix of relaxation and preparation for next season.
